From My Friend, Susan, of NC -05/27/15:
becomes a living and an attractive virtue when it is regarded not only
as a willingness to die manfully, but also as a determination to live
decently. A moral coward is one who is afraid to do what he thinks is
right because others will disapprove or laugh. Remember that all men
have their fears, but those who face their fears with dignity have
courage as well.”
Thomas S. Monson,
Thanks so much, Susan!

Turn off your t.v.
Turn off your cell phone.
Power down your computer.
Turn off your mind chatter.
Sit still and connect to the divine.
Do this for at least ten minutes a day.
You'll be surprised at the guidance that comes through.

BONUS MEMORIAL DAY RECIPES:
A woman had bought lots of shoes over time and she
decided it was time to kick the habit. She really took it seriously,
even changing her driving route to avoid her favorite shoe store. One
evening, however, she arrived home carrying a shoe box. Her husband
grinned at her, but it didn't faze her at all.

Words byJohn Newton, 1779
Amazing grace! (how sweet
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!
Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
